Today we celebrate World Animal Day, so it’s about time for Joey, Hiro and Akira to have their annual shining moment on the blog. These three sweethearts are such a big part of our family and I love each and one of them dearly.
On a sad note: I had everything prepared for this blog post today, when I, unexpectedly, had to take Hiro to the vet this morning. He got his share of antibiotics and pain killers, so I hope to see him doing well by the time I come home from work tonight.
You know what they say about enjoying the little things in life… That’s exactly what I’ve been trying to do over the last couple of weeks. They include having a relaxed homemade dinner, having Hiro over in our bed in the morning (only in the weekends, though) and visiting my buddy Joey at my parents’ house (he still sits under my chair in their kitchen).
Last year, Steven and I started a new tradition. Instead of spending a huge amount of time & money in the creation of holiday cards, we decided that we would donate the money spent on the cards (plus a little extra) to a charity of our choice.
